So I went to Los Angeles earlier this month to visit my cousin. As expected she was an amazing host and had me bopping all over Los Angeles. Of course I didn’t mind. LA is one of those special places that always leaves me questioning everything. For starters, why don’t I live there? You get way more bang for your buck concerning lodging. The climate is exceptional, and I have a good amount of friends and my favorite cousin living in the metropolis. However, the one thing that I always notice whenever I’m out there is how much I don’t put myself out there. Everyone is like a peacock, showing off their beautiful feathers and I humbly look on. Which begs the question…why am I holding back?
Sometimes I believe we reflect our surroundings. If I were perhaps surrounded by a bunch of peacocks, would I then perk up and show my pretty colors too? Maybe I do show myself as I am, it’s just overshadowed in LA due to everyone being equally as shiny? Who knows? All I know is it was a good thing, because I definitely saw that I had a few things to work on and I do want to work on them. So as always, I arrive in LA as one person and leave it completely different. This I can honestly say is completely worth it.
Until next time, that’s the word from its her word!
